I wore my newest one, and got the feeling that there were pins in the bra. (No laughing,folks, that's REALLY what I felt.)
So I took it off and inspected the bra carefully, and
These doohickeys are obviously pressed in a series, and then broken off and fitted to the bras...in the process, no one thought of that tiny, sharp "thorn" on the piece, which would dig wickedly into soft skin.
Why can't our manufacturing process use a little imagination? Oh...no...that would make them HUMAN!
I had to heat up a knife and melt that spur off....ah, the relief!
